I've recently dumped PHP for Python. Python is just so much easier, faster, 
cleaner, and generally nicer than PHP, not to mention it's properly object 
orientated. I'm loving Python!

I taught myself Python by essentially diving in the deep end and writing a 
project management system in a Python MVC framework called Pylons. You've used 
CakePHP, so getting to know Pylons should be fairly easy for you.

So, if you're wanting to get back into "proper" programming, I strongly 
recommend you have a look at Python and Pylons.
